LAS VEGAS, NV (WFSB) - The UConn Huskies are preparing for a Sweet 16 game on Thursday against Arkansas.

Las Vegas, Nevada is the site of the West Regional.

The activity is ramping up, not only at T-Mobile Arena, but also on the Las Vegas Strip.

Connecticut fans are on the way, keep in mind they are traveling the farthest to the regional so in the meantime, New Englanders, unite for Huskies pride.

UConn will meet Arkansas on Thursday night. Razorback fans are showing up all over the place, in fact, you can call for them and they will answer.

The Huskies had to change hotels Wednesday morning. The team had to leave their first hotel and go to another hotel along the strip.

UConn got 90 minutes of practice time Tuesday.

The Huskies said they are prepared to play against Arkansas.

“If you watch their team you can tell they’re a team who love to get in the paint and attack the rim, so really just stopping the penetration, being able to contain, guarding the ball 1 on 1. It’s gonna be a fast paced game,” said UConn senior guard Joey Calcaterra.
